4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml stubby bottle, poured into a snifter at home. ABV 10%
Gusher but knowing Alvinne and their Morpheus yeast I had my glass ready to be filled up.
Pours a black beer with a good sized brown head. Average retention. Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of dark roasted malts, yeast, sour fruits, dark fruits, litttle chocolate.
Tastes very good! Again dark fruits and malts, just a little bit of yeast and sourness, lots of coffee on the finish. Alcohol very well hidden.
Full body, carbonation is okay although a bit high.
Overall a very good imperial stout and one that I wasn’t expecting to be so good!

DWG; Exploding bottle, when steered in the glass -a beauty. Pours black large creamy brown with cediments, lasting head. Aroma is malty, sour, dark fruits, chocolate and coffee with spice. Taste is much of the above, sour, yeasty, vinious and spicy. Midium bitterness in finish. Despite the explotion, a great beer.

Bottle. Black color with an insanely thick brown head. The pouring took 10 mins as the foam was so active. I still lost quite a few drops on the table. Aroma of dried fruits, oak and licorice. Dry, roasty taste. Bitter finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl. bottle. Pours black with a huge dark-tan head. Quite complex. Tastes are of roasted malts, bits of coffee, darker fruits, petter, lots of liquorice and anise. I starts out sweet but soon becomes bitter with a slightly sour aftertaste. Mouthfeel is full. This is a flavourbomb. I could live without that slightly sour aftertaste, but it works fine as it is. Peppery flavours in a beer is not always a good idea, but combined with the hard roast and the notes of liquorice and anise it works quite well.
